We had a great week in Paris at the beginning of February and, as usual, I took some photos. Highlights of the week included the Louvre, Musee D’Orsay, Versailles, Sacre-Couer and Gustave Moreau’s house. I really enjoy observing people in the presence of art, and there’s hardly a better place on earth to do that!…
Day of the dead
New year’s day 2023. It had been a while since I’d spent a bit of time on a landscape shot, and even longer since I’d taken and assembled a 360 image, so I popped up to our local graveyard and made some images. These were shot with a Canon 5DSR as 2-stop bracketed exposures and…
Sicily, November 2022
We spent a week in Sicily at the start of November – mainly in Palermo, with a couple of day trips to Agrigento and Cefalú. The weather was nice and the crowds a little lighter, so it was a great time to visit this beautiful Italian island. As is customary on our trips, a lot…
Winter in Dublin
To promote Dublin’s huge range of attractions, events, venues and activities on offer during the winter, we created this campaign for Fáilte Ireland with tailored content for November, December and January. The campaign included a 20″ ad for streaming services, TV stings, digital display, print and social ads in all the usual formats for each…
New Year’s Festival Dublin
Online, outdoor, print, social and digital campaign for the Dublin New year’s Festival 2022/23. I art directed, designed and edited this campaign for Fáilte Ireland at CORE.
We went to Rome at the start of September 2022. It was still pretty much in peak tourist season and the weather was reaching close to 35 degrees, especially on the day we took an express train down to visit Pompeii. The crowds inside the Vatican made it feel like 45 degrees. We always enjoy…
Marble Arch Caves
Marble Arch Caves in Co. Fermanagh is one of the best showcaves in Europe. I’d highly recommend a visit! As part of the visitor experience, we created this short VR film, which visitors to the caves can experience in a new VR room at the visitor centre. I spent several days in the caves during…
Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps 2022
Great fun campaign produced for this year’s Cúl Camps. Lots of energy and mayhem at the shoot and I think everyone, including myself had a lot of FUN – which is what Cúl Camps are all about.
I’m just back from an amazing week in Venice. I mean, the week itself was probably unremarkable, in the life of Venice, but the place is amazing. Quite unique, as far as I know. From the moment we landed at Venice airport, to the moment we landed back in Dublin, roads, cars, traffic, motorbikes, bicycles,…
Make A Wish
I’m really pleased to have had the chance to make this campaign for the fantastic charity Make-a-Wish Ireland. The production was a collaborative effort between ourselves at BBDO Dublin, Rubberduck and Make-a-wish Ireland and it was very enjoyable and rewarding to work on. Creative: James Carr, Gerry McBride Directors: Ben and Conor at RubberDuck DOP:…
